Dwarf Birch, also known as Bog Birch for its common occurrence in wet areas, is a small deciduous shrub native to North America.
Found growing up into the arctic circle, this is one of the few trees that grows that far north.
Common in riparian zones and boreal forests across Western Canada. It is a common reclamation species.
This species is often used by local artisans to twist into shapes like willow and make decorative hearts, circles, etc.
